Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web 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 Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which process the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of users are using a site simultaneously. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every website hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an excellent choice for managing different real-time script-based apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users with no previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will just have to indicate the path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to insert the path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
