Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference if a large number of users are using a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each cloud web hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is available with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages an optimal solution for hosting different real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll just have to add the path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, since this platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent performance even if you use lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or removed independently and you will be granted with access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
