Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a site all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you no longer require it. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available 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, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS plans that we’re offering and you can activate it without encountering any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You need to indicate the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and many others.
