Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build 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 Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of users are using a site at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart each instance independently, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that the system can give you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you will need to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of each of your apps or to stop/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we are offering and you can set it up without experiencing any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many script-based applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to define the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform once your server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty simple to work with, you will be able to do that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many instances as you like on our amazingly powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
