Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems that process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it surely does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are using a website simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our plans and you can order it with just a few clicks. If you wish to use it for different web sites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an incredible performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven apps at no additional fee when you get any of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a user-friendly GUI, which will permit you to start/delete/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is include the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
