Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or web-based chat systems, for example, and numerous companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting package you have chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to select the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you do not want it any longer. You will also get access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each package that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to insert the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
