Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a website simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud service that we’re offering come with Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the path to your .js app and to decide if 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 hosting platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deleted independently and you can view the output of your applications with only several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can use Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting service offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for many websites and enjoy a fabulous performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to delete or to restart any instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and so on.
