Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other systems 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 negligible for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of users are using a site at the same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live communication.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All website hosting services offered by us come with Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to set the precise path to your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather easy-to-use interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting services that we’re offering and you can activate it without any difficulties, even if you’ve never used it before, as Hepsia offers a user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to enter the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
