Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, 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 insignificant for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a huge number of people are navigating a website at once. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you will be able to insert the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface, you will have to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for each script-based app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not put a limit as to how many instances you can make use of, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You will only have to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to stop or to restart any instance running on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to indicate the location of the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
