Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in large hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a website simultaneously. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
When you host a web app on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for managing multiple real-time web-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll only need to add the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to insert the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total number of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you’ll have complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
