Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if an enormous number of people are visiting a website simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting packages that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or see the running instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a really intuitive graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can set it up with just several clicks. In case you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based web app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed a restriction as to the amount of instances that you can activate, you can take advantage of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t have to cope with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply need to enter the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you can check your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom Control Panel tool. As our servers are rather powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you use numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you’ll acquire access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses Node.js.
