Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of people are visiting a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package that we offer, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we offer and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software apps as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will need to specify the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to add the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
