Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems 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 a single user, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of people are navigating a site all at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You can use Node.js with each hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of each of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy an excellent overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is available in our in-house built tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get great performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you will receive access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
