Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info 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 on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there are lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or live chat apps, for example, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All website hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very user-friendly graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an optimal choice for running multiple real-time web-based apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll just have to specify the location of the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also choose a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you can uncover its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
