Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can considerably speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser games or online chat programs, for instance, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All Linux hosting plans that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to set the exact path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port designated by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js application or see the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with just a couple of clicks. In case you wish to use it for several sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as including the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use GUI that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we’re offering and you can set it up without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you want, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance that Node.js offers. You will have to enter the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform once your physical machine is set up. As Hepsia is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP 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 Node.js instances as you wish on our very powerful servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
