Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it actually does make a difference when a huge number of people are using a site at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the 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 define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, in case it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages a perfect choice for building numerous real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll just need to add the location of the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the path to the given .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 set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit as to the total number of instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
