Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it surely does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a site at the same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each website hosting plan offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can see your applications’ output with only several clicks.
Node.js in VPS
All Linux VPS services that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-driven web app that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t set a limit on the amount of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t have to cope with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll just have to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to view the output of your apps and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is available with all dedicated hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to enter the path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total number of instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will exert complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
