Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of users are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared website hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can order it with just several mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal solution for running different real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll just need to indicate the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to add the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction as to the total amount of instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will exert complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
