Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a site at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All Linux cloud service that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our packages and you can enable it with only several clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to order new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal solution for setting up multiple real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll simply need to enter the location of the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra fee when you get one of our Linux dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be selected automatically too and you will see the benefits of running Node.js instantly. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
