Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of users are visiting a site all at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live communication.
Node.js in Hosting
All Linux hosting packages that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port designated by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally intuitive interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is included with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is very intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple websites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as this event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom tool. Since our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy great results even if you use numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted separately and you will acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
