Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of users are visiting a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose how many instances you want 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 include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can enable it with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for different websites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints regarding the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal solution for hosting numerous real-time script-powered web apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You will simply need to enter the path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered software applications at no extra charge in case you order any of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-work-with interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you will need to do to set it up is specify the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
