Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 truly does make a difference when an immense number of people are browsing a site all at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can 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 show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with each of the Linux VPS service that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you have no experience with such software, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra charge if you purchase one of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll need to do to activate it is add the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be selected automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js right away. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
