Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a site at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared web hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is included with each and every semi-dedicated plan that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an optimal choice for running multiple real-time Internet applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several clicks to do it. You will just need to specify the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the event-driven platform once your physical machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is really intuitive, you will be able to make that without coming across any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
