Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the information in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if a large number of people are browsing a site at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting package you’ve picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you can specify the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our plans and you can enable it with just several clicks. If you’d like to use it for different web sites, you can get more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as including the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use GUI that will allow you to restart and to shut down any of your active instances, to get new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of websites and enjoy an impressive performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to terminate or to restart any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to indicate the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of instances that you can create and use at the same time and you’ll have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, etcetera.
