Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled 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 if a huge number of individuals are visiting a website all at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which web hosting plan you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section 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 want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it if you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deleted independently and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an excellent overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to terminate or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra cost if you obtain any of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be assigned automatically too and you will see the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
