Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google 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 traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of users are navigating a site at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or stopped separately and you can see the output of your applications with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us and you can configure it without any impediments, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you need, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to add the path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’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 set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
