Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it really does make a difference when an enormous number of users are browsing a website at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if it is necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also set a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any web app that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t imposed any restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you can see the output of your applications and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etcetera.
