Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other 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 insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website at the very same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting plan you’ve picked during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to define the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it if you no longer want it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS that we offer and you can configure it without coming across any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You have to indicate the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total number of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
