Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or web-based chat clients, for example, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which website hosting package you have picked at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can define the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you no longer need it. You’ll also get access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it’s available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to add the location of 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 Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can check your apps’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting service that we’re offering and you can activate it without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You will need to indicate the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
