Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive web browser games or online chat software, for example, and many corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s included with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by our company and you can configure it without experiencing any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will have to add the path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform once your machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather easy to work with, you will be able to do that without having any obstacles, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is add the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our very powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
