Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there are lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or online chat clients, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with each shared website hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check 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-driven web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our packages and you can set it up with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your active instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can use Node.js with each of the Linux VPS plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limits on how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for many websites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. As Hepsia is extremely easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our amazingly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without effort.
