Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are using a website at once. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde 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 package that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to 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 show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our plans and you can set it up with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for several web sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also choose a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to order new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for hosting numerous real-time script-driven apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to indicate the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and many others.
