Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional 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 a single person, but it really does make a difference if a large number of users are navigating a website at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to choose the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you no longer need it. You will also get access to the output code with only a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we offer and you can set it up without having any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it before, because Hepsia has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven web applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll have to define the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is really easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without any problem, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our super-powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
