Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the info in massive hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are using a website at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with each cloud website hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should proceed 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 reboot or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it’s is included with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to enter the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or terminated separately and you can see your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

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 the need to deal with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you want, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You will need to define the location of the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely easy to use, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
