Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously improve the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the site expands and there are lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat apps, for instance, and many corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you have chosen during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our packages and you can add it with only a few clicks. If you want to use it for several Internet sites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as indicating the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can run Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is really intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of websites and enjoy an exceptional overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to shut down or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the platform is integrated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are quite powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or removed separately and you’ll be provided with access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
