Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms 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 negligible for one single user, but it actually does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with only a few clicks of the mouse. If you’d like to use it for several web sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints with regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect solution for hosting different real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You will just have to specify the folder path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform once your dedicated server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to work with, you will be able to do that without encountering any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform 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 platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you like on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
