Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat apps, for instance, and many companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with each shared web hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a few mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to remove an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to indicate 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 choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got 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 the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS web hosting service that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-powered software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set a limit as to how many instances you can use, you can make use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You will simply have to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform as soon as your physical machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly simple to work with, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is define the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you wish on our extremely powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
