Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser games or instant messaging software, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the exact location of your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port set by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with just several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our plans and you can set it up with just a few mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different web sites, you can get more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we’re offering and you can set it up without having to cope with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-based software applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll have to define the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will select a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limit on the total number of instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
