Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat platforms, for example, and plenty of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you are able to add this innovative platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to select the exact location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number set by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, edit the location of the .js app or view the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a fantastic overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform once your server is assembled. Since Hepsia is rather user-friendly, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the directory path to 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 IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our really powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
