Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chat programs, for example, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every web hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy an excellent performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to indicate the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, etcetera.
