Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other systems 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 indeed does make a difference if a large number of individuals are navigating a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you’ve picked at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you wish to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it in case you no longer want it. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with only a single mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. If you would like to use it for several sites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your running instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based applications at no extra fee when you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-work-with interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is enter the path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
