Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or live chat clients, for example, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You can use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use this event-driven platform for any script-powered application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not put any limit on the amount of instances that you can use, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not come across any obstacles while using the platform. You will simply need to include the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you can check your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is very intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without having any problem, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our ultra-powerful machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
