Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems that process the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of people are visiting a website at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance independently, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can get it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for several web sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as choosing the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an optimal option for administering different real-time Internet apps and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You will only have to add the location of the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as this event-driven platform is built into our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are truly powerful, you’ll get great results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll obtain access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
