Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is 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 indeed does make a difference when a huge number of users are browsing a site at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
All Linux hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the path to your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number specified by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js application or check the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a truly easy-to-navigate GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our plans and you can order it with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for multiple websites, you can enable more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal solution for building multiple real-time script-powered apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll just need to specify the folder path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the applications’ output and to restart or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no additional cost when you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-work-with interface, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is specify the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
