Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, when a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a site all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section 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 the account. You can select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, since it’s available with all our plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view your applications’ output with just several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for administering multiple real-time script-based applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few clicks to make this. You will only need to include the location of the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to view the output of the apps and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order any of our dedicated service for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is integrated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our servers are astonishingly powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or removed independently and you’ll be granted with access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
