Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of people are visiting a site at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All website hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to set the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port designated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite user-friendly graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or removed independently and you can check your apps’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for any Internet application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a limitation as to the amount of instances that you can get, you can make the most of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any impediments while using the platform. You will simply need to specify the directory 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 designate a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to define the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll exert complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and so on.
