Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a site simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll need to enter the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a superb performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as this platform is incorporated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has selected a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or removed separately and you’ll have access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
