Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that need real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging applications, for example, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with every web hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to terminate an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you want to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as entering the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for managing different real-time web apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You will only need to indicate the path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is really easy to use, you will be able to make that without having any problem, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our very powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
