Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of people are browsing a website at the same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also set a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting that we’re offering and you can set it up without encountering any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, since Hepsia has an easy-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web applications as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You have to include the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is included in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you run multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or removed independently and you will be provided with access to a detailed output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
