Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled 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 absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are navigating a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via 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 can choose how many instances 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 include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or removed independently and you can check your applications’ output with only a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-driven software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not imposed any limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can run, you can take advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click GUI, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t need to cope with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to indicate the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you can view the output of your applications and to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this event-driven platform is included in our custom-built tool. Since our dedicated servers are pretty powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you make use of many Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
