Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a huge number of people are browsing a website at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with every cloud hosting plan offered by our company, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to order. 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 want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can set it up with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for several sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can get Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for many sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no additional fee when you acquire any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an intuitive interface, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is enter the directory path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be assigned automatically too and you will see the advantages of using Node.js instantaneously. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
