Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a website at the very same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared website hosting plan you have chosen during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can include the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down if you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to terminate/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by us and you can set it up without any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you need, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You will need to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely easy to work with, you will be able to do that without coming across any difficulty, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our incredibly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
