Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms 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 negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are visiting a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every shared website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to switch off an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for each web application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not imposed any limitation as to the number of instances that you can run, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You will only have to indicate the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use at the same time and you’ll exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
