Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are visiting a site all at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can make full use of the power that the system can offer you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface, you will need to insert the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal option for building numerous real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will simply need to enter the location of the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you can unleash its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and so on.
