Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms 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 certainly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All Linux cloud website hosting packages offered by our company support Node.js and you are able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the running instances with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an incredibly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with only a few clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your active instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-based web app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not put a limit on the number of Node.js instances that you can add, you can use the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not need to deal with any problems while using the platform. You will just have to include 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. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to terminate or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
