Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging apps, for example, and numerous companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to define the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also get access to the output code with only a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it’s available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped separately and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can set it up without having to cope with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered web applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to specify the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to define the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
