Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the website grows bigger and there are plenty of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or instant messaging applications, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can use this platform for each Internet application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed any limit as to how many instances you can activate, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not come across any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will only need to add the directory 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. In addition, our system will also select a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click of the mouse, you can view the output of your apps and to terminate or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to enter the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit on the total number of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etc.
