Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can add it with only several clicks. If you want to use it for several sites, you can order more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for each script-driven web application that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed any restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make full use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t come across any impediments while working with the platform. You will just need to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you can check your apps’ output and to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and so on.
