Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or online chat clients, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by us, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find 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 application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to turn off an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it with only a few clicks. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to shut down any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for running numerous real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you want to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will simply have to specify the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also choose a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the applications’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to define the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
