Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of people are browsing a site simultaneously. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will have to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can view the output of your applications with just a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS services that we are offering and you can configure it without any impediments, even if you’ve never used it before, because Hepsia has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to define the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely user-friendly, you will be able to make that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js 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 set up as many Node.js instances as you wish on our powerful machines and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
