Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site expands and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to cancel an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it comes with each semi-dedicated server package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect option for administering multiple real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to make this. You will simply need to add the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to add the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etc.
