Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet 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 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 truly does make a difference if a large number of people are visiting a website at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared hosting package you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to include the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to delete it in case you do not need it anymore. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just a single mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or terminated separately and you can view your applications’ output with just a few clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-driven application that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed a limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can add, you can make full use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t have to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You will only need to enter the folder 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. In addition, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to remove or to restart any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
