Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from 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 when a large number of people are navigating a site all at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to add the location of 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 in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the given app should 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 restarted or stopped separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple websites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered apps at no extra fee in case you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js instantly. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
