Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser video games or web-based chat portals, for example, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to set the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, modify the path to the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an amazingly intuitive graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be restarted or terminated independently and you can check your applications’ output with only several clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can use Node.js with any of the VPS service that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the directory 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 VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous websites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the location of the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
