Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are visiting a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services include Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS that we’re offering and you can activate it without having to cope with any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an intuitive, point & 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 like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll need to include the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly intuitive, you will be able to do that without having any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you want on our really powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
