Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of users are browsing a website all at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you can define the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you do not need it any longer. You will also get access to the output code with only a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just several clicks. If you wish to use it for different sites, you can create more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for administering numerous real-time web apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users with no previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll simply need to insert the location of the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
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 take advantage of the event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is extremely simple to work with, you will be able to do that without encountering any predicaments, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many instances as you need on our really powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
