Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are navigating a website at the same time. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud website hosting plan you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with only a single mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with just several clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can enable more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as entering the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software applications at no extra cost if you order any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-use GUI, which will permit you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is indicate the path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the benefits of using Node.js immediately. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
