Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of people are visiting a website at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, 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 a pretty easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia 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 user-friendly interface, you will need to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we’re offering and you can set it up without any impediments, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You have to specify the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated service on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
