Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of people are browsing a website at the same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live communication.
Node.js in Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia 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 the account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so in case you’d like to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of each of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-driven application that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t put any restriction on the amount of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t come across any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You’ll just need to specify the 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. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click, you can check your applications’ output and to shut down or to reboot any instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the platform once your server is up and running. Since Hepsia is pretty user-friendly, you will be able to do that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you wish on our very powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
