Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to select 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 show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, 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 platform is offering, as it’s is included with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. Then, you will have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can view the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can get Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy a terrific performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are pretty powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you host a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has designated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
