Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of users are using a website simultaneously. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port assigned by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally intuitive interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can view your applications’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting service that we’re offering in case you select 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’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for lots of websites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra fee in case you order any of our Linux dedicated service and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-use interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to set it up is define the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you will see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
