Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in sizeable chunks, it processes 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 as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a website all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with each website hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it is is included with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deleted separately and you can view the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS that we’re offering and you can activate it without any predicaments, even if you have not used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You need to insert the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is pretty simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the location of 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 IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many instances as you wish on our really powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with no effort.
