Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 surely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a site at the very same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need fast live communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which shared hosting package you have picked during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it if you no longer want it. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans offer Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your apps or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you have never used it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software applications as you need, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You need to add the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool. As our servers are exceptionally powerful, you will get excellent performance even if you run numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or shut down separately and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
