Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are navigating a site at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting services that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the location of your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a truly intuitive GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it is comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or removed separately and you can see the output of your apps with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we offer and you can activate it without having any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, as Hepsia offers a user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many applications as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to define the location of the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform once your physical machine is up and running. As Hepsia is quite easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any complications, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
