Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud website hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s available with each semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any software application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a restriction on the amount of instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just need to enter the path in the 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 select a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to see your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform as soon as your server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to work with, you will be able to do that without experiencing any complications, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our amazingly powerful servers and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with ease.
