Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms 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 insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deleted separately and you can check the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers offered by us and you can activate it without needing to deal with any problem, even if you have never worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an intuitive, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You need to enter the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated service on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
