Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, 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 negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of users are using a site at the same time. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which hosting package you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you would like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you can indicate the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it if you no longer need it. You’ll also get access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can order it with just several clicks. If you’d like to use it for several websites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as entering the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any script-powered application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put a restriction as to how many instances you can get, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point & click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not need to deal with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply have to insert the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to view your applications’ output and to deactivate or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is exceptionally simple to use, you will be able to do that without having any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the directory path to 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 one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our amazingly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
