Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional 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 undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of people are browsing a website all at once. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every cloud website hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for hosting numerous real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for persons without any prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You’ll only need to include the path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-powered web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is incorporated into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you will get excellent performance even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it quite easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or deleted independently and you’ll obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
