Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a site at the same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our plans and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as entering the path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect solution for administering multiple real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply need to include the path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also choose a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this platform once your dedicated server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly easy to work with, you will be able to do that without coming across any obstacles, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without any effort.
