Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the info in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a site at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared website hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once 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 wish to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no extra charge if you buy any of our dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a user-friendly GUI, which will allow you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is enter the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be allocated automatically too and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
