Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are browsing a website at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s included with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting that we offer and you can activate it without any impediments, even if you have not worked with it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You have to add the path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
