Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, 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 users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference if an enormous number of users are browsing a website at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting plans offered by us include Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to choose 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 assigned by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with only a couple of mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting plans offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for many sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra cost when you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly GUI, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is enter the location of the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you will see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
