Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it surely does make a difference if a huge number of users are visiting a site at the very same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting packages offered by us come with Node.js and you’re able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to select the location of your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can view the output of your applications with just several mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is included in our in-house built tool. As our servers are very powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will 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 removed independently and you will get access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
