Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it is 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 from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a site at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can enable it with only a few clicks. In case you want to use it for several web sites, you can get more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with each of the VPS hosting plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such software, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since this event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you manage multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or deleted independently and you will obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
