Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are navigating a website at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, as it’s comes with all our packages and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you will need to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or removed separately and you can check your applications’ output with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS hosting plans offered by our company and you can configure it without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You have to indicate the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our really powerful machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
