Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are navigating a site at once. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need quick live communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up 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 address of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you will need to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a random port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to delete/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
