Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there are many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser video games or online chat clients, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting offered by our company include Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to set the location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number assigned by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, edit the location of the .js app or see the running instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a very simple-to-navigate 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 offers, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll need to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or shut down separately and you can check the output of your applications with only a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages an optimal option for running different real-time apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to add the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the applications’ output and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since Hepsia is pretty user-friendly, you will be able to do that without any impediments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our ultra-powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
