Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of people are browsing a website at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it in case you do not require it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with just one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS packages offered by our company and you can configure it without having to cope with any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to specify the directory path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total number of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
