Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a site at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every cloud website hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have 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 of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our plans and you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. In case you wish to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we offer and you can set it up without any impediments, even if you haven’t worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You have to include the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they will 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 as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and so on.
