Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a site at the very same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it with just a couple of clicks. In case you want to use it for several web sites, you can activate more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for any script-powered software app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not put a restriction on how many Node.js instances you can make use of, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t encounter any impediments while working with the platform. You will simply need to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also allocate a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only a click, you can see your applications’ output and to terminate or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the location of the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
