Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you wish to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. Then, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be restarted or deleted independently and you can view the output of your applications with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers 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 platform for each application that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed any restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can run, you can use the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not encounter any impediments while using the platform. You will only need to include the 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 address. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you can see the output of your apps and to remove or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional cost in case you acquire one of our Linux dedicated service and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is define the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be selected automatically too and you’ll notice the advantages of running Node.js immediately. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
