Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for example, and plenty of companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each hosting package that we are offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with several clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for different websites, you can enable more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as entering the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-based web application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t encounter any impediments while using the platform. You’ll just have to add the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also designate a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since this platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy great results even if you use plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or shut down separately and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
