Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably improve the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chat apps, for instance, and many companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to set the precise location of your .js application and to decide whether you will 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 hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or see the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a really user-friendly interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it’s available with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an excellent solution for running multiple real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll just need to enter the path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etc.
