Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a website at the same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can enter the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it in case you don’t require it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

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 platform is offering, as it is comes with all our plans and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view the output of your apps with only a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for any Internet application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not imposed any limitation on how many instances you can create, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t encounter any obstacles while using the platform. You will simply need to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also designate a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you will be able to check your apps’ output and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you use multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or terminated independently and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
