Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js application or view the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly user-friendly graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting services offer Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that the system can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will designate a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting services that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for each script-based web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not put a restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not have to cope with any obstacles while working with the platform. You will simply need to include the 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. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to check your applications’ output and to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to order any of our dedicated web hosting for your script-based web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the platform is built into our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or canceled independently and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
