Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a website all at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart 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-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations concerning the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for managing numerous real-time script-powered apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You’ll only need to insert the path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the output of the apps and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Since Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you will be able to make that without experiencing any problem, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many instances as you like on our stunningly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
