Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser games or live chats, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to order. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will go through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given app.
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 is offering, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you will need to enter the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can view your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
All VPS services that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-powered software app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t put any limit on the number of instances that you can set up, 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 setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not have to cope with any problems while using the platform. You’ll only have to indicate the 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 address. What’s more, our system will also select a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only a click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to shut down or to restart any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you can uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to define the path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
