Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a website at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration 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 ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous sites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.
