Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a website simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or discontinued independently and you can see your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

This makes our VPS packages an excellent choice for hosting different real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this.

Our system will also set a specific 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 enable you to check the applications’ output and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

The latter has a very intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to define the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
