Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud website hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one 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 menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or removed independently and you can check the output of your applications with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS packages that we are offering and you can set it up without any obstacles, even if you have never used it before, because Hepsia offers a simple-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to insert the path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra charge when you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will enable you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically too and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js immediately. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
