Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there are lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or instant messaging software, for example, and plenty of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting services that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port given by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js application or see the output of the active instances with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it is comes with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the 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 instance that you add can be restarted or deleted independently and you can see the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS
All VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the event-driven platform for each script-powered software application that you run on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed any limitation on how many Node.js instances you can get, you can take advantage 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-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to insert the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you can see the output of your apps and to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra cost in case you order any of our dedicated hosting services and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is specify the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically too and you will see the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
