Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
All Linux hosting service that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the exact path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number allocated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a pretty user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just a few mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as indicating the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for each script-driven software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t set a restriction on the amount of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t come across any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to specify the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also select a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to see your apps’ output and to remove or to reboot any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as this platform is built into our custom-built tool. As our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will get great performance even if you run a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has set a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you’ll acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
