Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or live chats, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can order it with just several clicks. In case you’d like to use it for several sites, you can enable more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with such software, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of websites and enjoy an excellent performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this platform once your server is assembled. Since Hepsia is pretty simple to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any problem, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without any effort.
