Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat portals, for instance, and plenty of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting plans offered by us come with Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the precise path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port chosen by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, edit the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-navigate GUI.
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 is offering, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or removed separately and you can view your apps’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can configure it without any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers a simple-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The platform can be used for as many apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll need to add the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the event-driven platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are pretty powerful, you will get stunning results even if you host many Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has selected a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
