Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there are many people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or web-based chat portals, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port set by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, edit the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally intuitive interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can make use of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each software app that you host on the VPS. As we have not imposed any restriction on the number of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t experience any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll just need to insert the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just a click, you will be able to check your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-based web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are exceptionally powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you run lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or discontinued separately and you’ll be given access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
