Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms 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 one single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are 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 couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this platform for each application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed any limit as to the number of Node.js instances that you can use, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have any difficulties 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 if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also designate a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you’ll be able to view the output of your applications and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers for your script-based web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you run many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated separately and you will get access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
