Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out 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 efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to restart each instance separately, if it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can enable it with just several clicks. In case you want to use it for several sites, you can enable more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as including the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use the platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly user-friendly, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any difficulty, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 web sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you wish on our astonishingly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without effort.
