Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the information in large chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems 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 undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it’s available with all our packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done 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 access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or removed independently and you can check your applications’ output with only several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we offer and you can activate it without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have not used it before, since Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You will need to enter the directory path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to add the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
