Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems 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 insignificant for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a website at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which cloud website hosting plan you have picked upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you don’t require it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. If you want to use it for multiple sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as indicating the path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is offered by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal option for running multiple real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll only need to enter the path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etcetera.
