Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of people are navigating a site at the very same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud web hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or deleted separately and you can view your apps’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations when it comes to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages an optimal choice for hosting different real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks to do it. You’ll just have to indicate the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to stop any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
