Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which process the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, 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 insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a site at the very same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to specify the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to disable it in case you do not require it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s included with each plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-driven web application that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t set any limit as to how many Node.js instances you can make use of, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t come across any obstacles while working with the platform. You will only need to specify the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also assign a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to see your applications’ output and to delete or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the event-driven platform once your machine is up and running. As Hepsia is extremely easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many instances as you need on our ultra-powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
