Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat systems, for example, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a few clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to switch off an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can activate it with only several clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your active instances, to get new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS servers that we offer and you can configure it without any predicaments, even if you have never used it before, as Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You need to add the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive, you will be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our ultra-powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
