Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of individuals are using a site all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via 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 couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to restart each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, because it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included as standard with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect choice for administering multiple real-time web-based applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You’ll only have to include the folder path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also select a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view the output of the applications and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
