Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a website at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting service that we’re offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the path to your .js application and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number allocated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can get it with only several mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for different web sites, you can enable more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as entering the folder path to 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’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions with regard to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect choice for building different real-time script-powered apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You’ll only have to add the location of the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a particular 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 apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the apps’ output and to reboot or to terminate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated service on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to specify the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
