Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent 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 a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser video games or instant messaging applications, for instance, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every website hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that the system can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of any of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for any script-powered app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set any limitation on how many Node.js instances you can use, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to cope with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just need to include the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also designate a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you will be able to view the output of your apps and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional fee if you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be designated automatically too and you will notice the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
