Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 a single user, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of people are browsing a website at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you will have to insert the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS hosting services offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a great performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as this platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you will get excellent results even if you manage a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated independently and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
