Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a site simultaneously. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud web hosting plan offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check the output of any given application.

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 offers, as it’s comes with all our plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different web apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or terminated independently and you can view the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple sites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered apps at no additional cost in case you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will permit you to start/remove/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is indicate the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
