Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 person, but it absolutely does make a difference if a large number of users are browsing a site all at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance independently, if required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, as it is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can check the output of your applications with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the platform once your machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is exceptionally easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without having any complications, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you want on our stunningly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
