Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of users are using a site at the same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every website hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to run. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints as to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal solution for administering numerous real-time script-driven apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You’ll just need to include the path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the apps’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional cost in case you purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is enter the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be assigned automatically too and you will see the benefits of using Node.js right away. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
