Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in large hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems 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 a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a site at the same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to the 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 specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans offer Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can give you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface, you will have to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal choice for setting up numerous real-time script-powered web applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll only need to specify the folder path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven web apps at no additional fee if you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll need to do to activate it is add the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be assigned automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
