Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of users are using a website at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting 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 feature to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance separately, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or stopped independently and you can view the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering and you can configure it without experiencing any difficulty, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to define the location of the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our really powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
