Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, once any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there’re many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser video games or online chat programs, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to set the precise location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number set by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js app or view the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite simple-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the particular app 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 activate can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can check your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can use the platform for any application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a limitation as to the number of Node.js instances that you can run, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you won’t have to cope with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to specify the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to specify the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will have complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
