Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, 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, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are using a site at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live communication.
Node.js in Hosting
You can use Node.js with every hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to suspend an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
All VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-driven web app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set any limit as to the number of Node.js instances that you can create, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t have to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll only need to add the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you can view your apps’ output and to discontinue or to reboot any instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to buy any of our dedicated hosting for your script-based applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since this event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you will obtain access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
