Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a site at the same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All Linux cloud website hosting services that we offer come with Node.js and you can add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number chosen by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the path to the .js application or see the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly intuitive graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can order it with only a few mouse clicks. If you’d like to use it for different sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is included by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect solution for running different real-time Internet applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to specify the folder path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated hosting for your script-based apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. As our dedicated servers are truly powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you use numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you’ll obtain access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
