Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a site at the same time. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to deactivate 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 use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or terminated independently and you can check your applications’ output with just several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an optimal choice for hosting numerous real-time script-based web apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You’ll simply have to enter the path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to see the applications’ output and to restart or to stop any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is available in our in-house built tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you run many Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be restarted or canceled separately and you will be provided with access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
