Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any info is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there are numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser games or live chat clients, for example, and lots of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a pretty simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will need to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this 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 specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can check your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-powered web application that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed a restriction as to how many Node.js instances you can make use of, you can take advantage of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t have to cope with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to enter the directory 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. In addition, our system will also specify a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to view the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and so on.
