Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or online chat apps, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the website hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your 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 choose whether the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can view the output of your apps with just several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal solution for managing numerous real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You will just need to enter the path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no extra fee in case you acquire one of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will permit you to start/deactivate/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you need to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be selected automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
