Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms 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 a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are browsing a website at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you have selected during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to define the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you do not want it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-powered web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since the platform is included in our custom-developed tool. As our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you run numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or shut down independently and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
