Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems that process the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms 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 negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a site at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting services offered by us support Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the path to your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port allocated by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js application or see the output of the running instances with just a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an extremely simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can check your apps’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is offered as standard with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans an optimal option for setting up numerous real-time Internet applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You’ll just have to include the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra fee if you acquire one of our dedicated servers hosting 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 via a user-friendly GUI, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be selected automatically too and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
