Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a website at the very same time. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to disable or to reboot each instance independently, if it is necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s available with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or removed independently and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks.
Node.js in VPS
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS packages that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of websites and enjoy a superb performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to specify the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
