Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a website all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which web hosting plan you’ve picked upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to insert the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to cancel it if you no longer require it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this 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 whether the access path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can see your applications’ output with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting services that we’re offering and you can set it up without any problems, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia offers a user-friendly, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll need to include the directory path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly simple to use, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our super-powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
