Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there are numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser video games or online chat programs, for example, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Hosting
You can use Node.js with each and every hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, as it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or terminated separately and you can check your applications’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS services that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is truly intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to shut down or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to use any of our dedicated hosting for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you manage a lot of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be restarted or removed independently and you’ll receive access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
