Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other 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 insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are browsing a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each cloud web hosting plan offered by our company, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you’d like to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can order it with just a couple of clicks. In case you’d like to use it for several sites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as including the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to shut down any of your running instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any script-based web application that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set any restriction on how many Node.js instances you can make use of, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles while working with the platform. You will simply have to include the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to check your applications’ output and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
