Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the online users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, once any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat apps, for example, and a lot of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for several sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as specifying the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting offered by our company and you can set it up without any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with it before, as Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll need to insert the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform once your physical machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely user-friendly, you will be able to make that without any problem, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you like on our incredibly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js with ease.
