Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems 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 insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting plan you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web applications, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or deleted independently and you can see your applications’ output with just several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by our company and you can set it up without having to cope with any problem, even if you have never worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You have to enter the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’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 create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated service on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to insert the path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
