Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems 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 a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a website all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to view any given application’s output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is built into our in-house developed tool. As our servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you make use of numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it really easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you’ll be provided with access to a detailed output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
