Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining 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 and one large hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the site expands and there’re many people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser games or live chat platforms, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the location of your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number allocated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a quite user-friendly interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to delete/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an ideal option for hosting numerous real-time script-powered apps and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You will simply have to insert the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to view the applications’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is define the folder 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 IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you like on our very powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
