Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of users are using a site all at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can indicate the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to remove it if you no longer require it. You will also get access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for each Internet application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t imposed any limit on how many Node.js instances you can activate, you can use the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not encounter any problems while working with the platform. You’ll just need to specify the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you’ll be able to view your applications’ output and to shut down or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra charge in case you order one of our Linux dedicated hosting and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application 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 Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is define the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js instantly. 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 enjoy the best possible performance.
