Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems 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 negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of people are browsing a website at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve picked during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can include the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you don’t need it anymore. You will also be given access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will have to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a few clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total amount of instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
