Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of users are visiting a site at the very same time. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it if you no longer want it. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated 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 that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given application’s output or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS plans offered by our company and you can set it up without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many software applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to insert the path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this event-driven platform once your machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our stunningly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
