Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a site all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with every hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to enter the path to 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 add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can view your applications’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any web application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t put a limitation as to how many instances you can activate, you can make full use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not have to deal with any obstacles while working with the platform. You’ll only need to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is built into our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will get superb results even if you host numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or canceled independently and you will have access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
