Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of people are using a site at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared website hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to suspend an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or deleted separately and you can view the output of your apps with only several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting service offered by us and you can activate it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you like, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You have to include the path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated service on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you can unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to add the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and so on.
