Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or live chat applications, for instance, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, as it’s available with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages a perfect option for building different real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll simply have to indicate the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since this event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-built tool. As our servers are quite powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or canceled independently and you will get access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
