Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a site at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which hosting package you have picked during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you wish to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to stop it if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also receive access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface, you will have to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each web-based app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not imposed a limit on how many instances you can get, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not have to deal with any problems while using the platform. You’ll simply need to indicate the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you can check your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is very user-friendly, you will be able to do that without experiencing any problem, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
