Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that handle the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are using a site at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Hosting

All Linux hosting packages that we’re offering include Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the exact path to your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js app or see the running instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud platform, since it is included with each plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS packages that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a superb performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, since this platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our servers are quite powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or canceled separately and you’ll be provided with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
