Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable applications. It uses 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 traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms 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 one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are browsing a site all at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
When you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can run Node.js with each of the VPS hosting packages that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is quite simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without any complications, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our exceptionally powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
