Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, 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 entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms 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 negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website all at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter 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 address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s needed.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for each web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put any restriction as to how many instances you can make use of, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not have to deal with any problems while working with the platform. You’ll simply need to insert the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you can view the output of your applications and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the event-driven platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is incredibly user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate 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 one or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our ultra-powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
