Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably improve the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser video games or online chat systems, for example, and lots of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to select the precise location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port selected by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, edit the path to the .js app or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a pretty user-friendly interface.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for each script-driven software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a limitation on how many Node.js instances you can create, you can make full use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you will not have any obstacles while working with the platform. You’ll simply need to enter the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you can check the output of your applications and to remove or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS server.
