Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based video games or live chat applications, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
If you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the hosting package that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it’s required.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this platform once your dedicated server is up and running. As Hepsia is amazingly easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any problem, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
