Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet 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 much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a site all at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you no longer want it. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can see the output of your applications with just a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of sites and enjoy an incredible performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you manage lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you’ll be given access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
