Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or online chat apps, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to select the exact location of your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t put any limit on the number of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not need to cope with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply need to indicate the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only a click, you can check your applications’ output and to shut down or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform once your dedicated server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any obstacles, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you need on our powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
