Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are browsing a site at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our packages and you can activate it with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you want to use it for different websites, you can enable more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to remove any of your active instances, to order new ones or to check your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting service that we’re offering and you can configure it without any problem, even if you have not used it beforehand, since Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will have to specify the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the platform once your physical machine is set up. As Hepsia is amazingly simple to work with, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the directory 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 activate as many instances as you like on our really powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
