Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the info in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it actually does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, regardless of which cloud website hosting plan you’ve picked upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to delete it in case you no longer need it. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations when it comes to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an optimal solution for managing different real-time script-powered apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll simply need to insert the folder path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etc.
