Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously improve the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser games or instant messaging software, for instance, and many companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All Linux cloud hosting packages that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or check the running instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly simple-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, as it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to specify the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you will have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
