Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based video games or live chat portals, for example, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to switch off an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that the system can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you will need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will choose a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting service offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for many sites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-based software applications at no additional charge when you obtain any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-use interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is add the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port will be set automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
