Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there’re numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser games or online chat apps, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number given by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly user-friendly interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, as it comes with each semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-driven web app that you run on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed a restriction as to how many instances you can use, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t come across any impediments while using the platform. You’ll simply have to specify the path in the VPS 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 set a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click, you will be able to view your applications’ output and to terminate or to restart any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can unleash its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
