Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s 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 handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or removed independently and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to use one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll enjoy great performance even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or deleted separately and you’ll acquire access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
