Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, 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 user, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a website at the very same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it in case you do not require it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for managing numerous real-time script-powered web applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to specify the path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is quite simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with ease.
