Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are navigating a website all at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with every web hosting plan offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few mouse clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to check any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s available with each semi-dedicated server package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. As Hepsia is really easy to use, you will be able to do that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our super-powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js without efforts.
