Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a website at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or removed separately and you can view your applications’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for any app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a restriction as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to cope with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to specify the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to see your applications’ output and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our astonishingly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
