Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web 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 online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in large hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional 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 insignificant for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of people are visiting a site at the same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every hosting package that we offer, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can add it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to add new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use the event-driven platform for each script-driven application that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t set any limitation on the amount of instances that you can run, you can make full use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t experience any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to include the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software apps at no additional fee in case you order any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-navigate interface, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to set it up is include the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be allocated automatically as well and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js immediately. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
