Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the info in massive hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a large number of individuals are using a site at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with every shared hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of each of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can get Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limits on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since this event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it rather easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or removed separately and you will be granted with access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
