Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the info in massive hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment 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 information in 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 a large number of people are browsing a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is included with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also designate a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each web-based app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set any restriction as to how many Node.js instances you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have any problems while using the platform. You will simply need to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you can see your applications’ output and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to indicate the location of the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will have total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
