Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, once any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website expands and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat systems, for example, and lots of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud web hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our plans and you can set it up with only a couple of clicks. In case you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as specifying the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-based software application that you run on the VPS. As we have not put any restriction on the number of instances that you can set up, you can make full use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you will not come across any impediments while using the platform. You will just need to enter the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you can check the output of your applications and to shut down or to restart any instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to include the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total amount of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etcetera.
