Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it truly does make a difference when a huge number of users are browsing a website at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which web hosting plan you’ve picked upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down if you no longer want it. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our packages and you can order it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for several websites, you can get more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to reboot and to discontinue any of your running instances, to order new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we are offering and you can activate it without any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, because Hepsia offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based apps as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You need to define the folder path to the .js file within your VPS 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 that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and so on.
