Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat applications, for instance, and many corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for each script-driven software application that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed any restriction as to the number of instances that you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not have to deal with any difficulties while using the platform. You will just have to insert the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you’ll be able to view the output of your apps and to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of this platform once your dedicated server is up and running. As Hepsia is pretty simple to use, you will be able to do that without having any difficulty, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our ultra-powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
