Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it really does make a difference when a large number of people are browsing a site at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which web hosting package you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to shut it down if you no longer want it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our packages and you can order it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for several sites, you can order more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as this platform is available in our in-house built tool. As our servers are rather powerful, you will get great results even if you use many Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you will be provided with access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
