Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging software, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number allocated by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a pretty simple-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it comes with each package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can view the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy a terrific performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to add the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limit as to the total number of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
