Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it really does make a difference if a large number of people are using a website at the same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to add the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also get access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you will need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a random port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations as to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an ideal solution for running multiple real-time script-driven web applications and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll simply need to insert the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, since this platform is integrated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy stunning results even if you use lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Inserting the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or canceled independently and you’ll be given access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
