Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are visiting a site at the very same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.
Node.js in Hosting
All Linux hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can get it with only a few clicks. In case you would like to use it for several websites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as adding the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this event-driven platform once your dedicated server is up and running. As Hepsia is amazingly simple to work with, you will be able to make that without having any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you need on our really powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with ease.
