Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of people are visiting a site at the very same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you will need to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can see the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for hosting different real-time script-powered web applications and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You will simply have to insert the folder path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the applications and to restart or to delete any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web applications at no additional charge when you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is enter the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be assigned automatically too and you will notice the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
