Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google 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 platforms which process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional 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 person, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. 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 to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also choose a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is included in our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you will get stunning results even if you use lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deleted independently and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
