Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of people are visiting a site at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance separately, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we’re offering and you can set it up without any impediments, even if you have never worked with it before, as Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You have to insert the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of this platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is really intuitive, you will be able to do that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our exceptionally powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
