Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a website all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with each cloud web hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to order. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can see your apps’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and so on.
