Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it actually does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are visiting a website at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it comes with each semi-dedicated package offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any script-powered app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed any limitation on the amount of instances that you can activate, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not need to cope with any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to specify the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to shut down or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get any of our dedicated servers for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since this platform is included in our custom tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you host numerous Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it very easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has set a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued separately and you will be granted with access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
