Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a website at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
When you host a web application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. In case you would like to use it for several sites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your active instances, to add new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions concerning the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages an optimal choice for administering numerous real-time script-powered apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks to do it. You’ll just have to specify the location of the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to check the applications’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, since the event-driven platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you will get stunning results even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it quite easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or terminated separately and you’ll receive access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
