Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time browser games or live chat software, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting packages offered by our company come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it is available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to enter the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can see the output of your apps with just several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for any script-driven software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set any limit on the number of instances that you can set up, you can take full advantage 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 easy-to-work-with, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t have any obstacles while working with the platform. You will only have to specify the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you can see your applications’ output and to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this platform as soon as your server is up and running. Since Hepsia is quite simple to use, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our incredibly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
