Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need fast live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
If you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for many websites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Quick-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra cost if you order one of our dedicated web hosting plans and select 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-use interface, which will permit you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you need to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be set automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
