Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 truly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a website all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each and every shared web hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
