Node.js is an avant-garde 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 large number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live communication.
Node.js in Website Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the website hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS web hosting plans offered by us and you can configure it without having any difficulty, even if you have never used it before, as Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any obstacles, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you wish on our extremely powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
