Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other 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 one single person, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of people are using a website at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to cancel an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or stopped separately and you can see your apps’ output with just several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to terminate or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to add the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will have complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
