Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of users are browsing a site at the same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each shared website hosting plan that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you would like to run. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans support Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you will have to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will choose a random port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of any of your applications or to deactivate/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can run Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous websites and enjoy a great overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance independently and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no extra fee in case you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of using Node.js right away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
