Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly enhance the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging applications, for example, and plenty of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every website hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will allocate a random port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this platform once your machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite simple to use, you will be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the directory 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 websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you like on our stunningly powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
