Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with every website hosting package that we offer, 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 clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you would like 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 hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can see the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for any web-based application that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed any limitation as to the number of Node.js instances that you can create, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not have to deal with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will simply need to insert the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also allocate a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you can see your applications’ output and to remove or to restart any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered software applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since this platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. As our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed separately and you’ll receive access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
