Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of people are visiting a website at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with every website hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define 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 select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to check the output of a given application or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since Hepsia is very intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you want on our stunningly powerful machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
