Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the website grows bigger and there are numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging applications, for example, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set the precise path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly intuitive graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we’re offering and you can set it up without any predicaments, even if you have never used it beforehand, because Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll need to indicate the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no additional cost if you order one of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to activate it is insert the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously. 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 get the best achievable performance.
