Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of users are browsing a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you have picked upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can define the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to remove it if you no longer require it. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an excellent performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven web apps at no additional fee in case you purchase one of our dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you have to do to activate it is add the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js right away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
