Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of people are visiting a site all at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting plans that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this innovative platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port selected by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally simple-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can enable more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-powered software application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed any limitation on the number of instances that you can activate, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not have any impediments while using the platform. You will simply need to include the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also set a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you will be able to check the output of your apps and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
