Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of users are visiting a site all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it if you no longer need it. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can check your apps’ output with only a few clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for any web application that you run on the VPS. As we haven’t put a limitation as to the number of instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t encounter any impediments while using the platform. You’ll simply have to enter the directory 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. Furthermore, our system will also select a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only a click, you will be able to see your apps’ output and to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since this event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom-built tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you use many Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has selected a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or shut down independently and you’ll be granted with access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
