Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser games or live chat platforms, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each website hosting package offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to view the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also select a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by us and you can set it up without any problems, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will need to specify the location of the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software applications at no extra charge if you purchase one of our Linux dedicated service and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you need to do to activate it is specify the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be set automatically as well and you will see the advantages of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
