Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a site all at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every web hosting package that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with several mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can view your apps’ output with just several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-based apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since this platform is incorporated into our in-house built tool. Since our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you’ll acquire access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
