Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, traditional 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 a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a website at the same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish 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 need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s available with each semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-driven application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not imposed any restriction as to how many Node.js instances you can create, you can use the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only have to specify the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you will be able to view your apps’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as the platform is integrated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent performance even if you make use of numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has chosen a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or deleted separately and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
