Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are browsing a site at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared web hosting plan you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it in case you don’t require it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting 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 define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also choose a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS plans that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the location of the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
