Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are visiting a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every website hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it is is included with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you will need to insert the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can see your apps’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS plans that we are offering and you can configure it without any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, since Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll have to enter the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as this platform is integrated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you use multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it quite easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated separately and you will get access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
