Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of users are browsing a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need quick live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you can insert the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you do not want it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our plans and you can set it up with only several clicks of the mouse. If you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous websites and enjoy an exceptional performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven apps at no additional charge if you buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a user-friendly interface, which will enable you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to activate it is indicate the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be assigned automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
