Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging clients, for example, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the 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 define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS
You can get Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for numerous sites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since this platform is included in our custom-built tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you host a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a few clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you’ll acquire access to a detailed output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
