Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of people are visiting a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can select the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can enable it with just several mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple web sites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy a terrific performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom tool. As our servers are incredibly powerful, you will get great performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you will get access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
