Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there are many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based video games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, modify the path to the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a pretty simple-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for plenty of sites and enjoy an exceptional overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your physical server is up and running. Since Hepsia is amazingly user-friendly, you will be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is define the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
