Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of users are browsing a site at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast live communication.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it in case you do not require it any longer. You will also have access to the output code with just one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for many websites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is included in our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will acquire access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
