Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a site simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web application that you have, regardless of which web hosting plan you’ve picked during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can set it up with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-powered app that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed any restriction as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click GUI, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while working with the platform. You will just need to indicate the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you can check your apps’ output and to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to make use of any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built tool. Since our servers are pretty powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes several clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will acquire access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
