Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of users are navigating a website at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every web hosting package that we offer, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time application on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you will have to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by our company and you can set it up without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, as Hepsia offers an intuitive, point-and-click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll have to define the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address 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 set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction on the total number of instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
