Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably enhance the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser video games or live chat applications, for example, and numerous companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with every cloud hosting package that we offer, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you would like to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you’d like to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will have to add the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the platform as soon as your dedicated server is up and running. Since Hepsia is amazingly simple to use, you will be able to make that without any obstacles, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
