Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 really does make a difference when a large number of people are using a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All Linux cloud hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you can add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to set the precise location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number designated by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js application or see the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a quite easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can set it up with just a couple of clicks. In case you want to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as including the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is included in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy superb performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has designated a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you’ll be provided with access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
