Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live communication.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to restart each instance independently, if it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no additional fee when you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is include the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
