Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser-based games or instant messaging software, for example, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with every shared website hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only a few mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for multiple sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limits on how many Internet sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to terminate or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order one of our dedicated servers for your script-based web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-built tool. Since our servers are rather powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you’ll get access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
