Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference when a huge number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or terminated separately and you can view the output of your apps with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS servers that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for lots of websites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to define the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll have complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etcetera.
