Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, once any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser games or online chat platforms, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS servers offered by our company and you can set it up without any complications, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based software apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You will need to add the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated 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 activate and run simultaneously and you will have complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
