Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the website hosting package that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can enable it with only a few mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for several websites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered software apps at no extra charge in case you obtain any of our dedicated hosting services and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate interface, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is define the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically too and you will notice the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
