Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of people are browsing a site at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every web hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can order it with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for different sites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and selecting 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 similar software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations as to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal solution for setting up numerous real-time script-driven apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You will simply need to indicate the location of the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the apps and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of this platform once your physical machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is really easy to use, you will be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our stunningly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js without any effort.
