Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 a single user, but it really does make a difference when a large number of individuals are visiting a website at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can select the number of instances that you wish to add to your 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 indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to restart each instance separately, if it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to specify the location of 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 during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous websites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the platform as soon as your physical server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is quite user-friendly, you will be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js 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 websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js with ease.
