Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously 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 small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser video games or online chat platforms, for instance, and many corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each web hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to turn off an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our packages and you can order it with only several clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different Internet sites, you can activate more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use this event-driven platform for each script-based web application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not put any limitation as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can take advantage of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not encounter any problems while using the platform. You’ll simply have to enter the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you can view the output of your apps and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is rather simple to work with, you’ll be able to do that without having any complications, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
