Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional 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 negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are visiting a website at the very same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given app.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect choice for managing numerous real-time web-based applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to specify the location of the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
