Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of users are using a website at the same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like 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 type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each Internet app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not imposed a limitation on the amount of instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you can view your apps’ output and to terminate or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
