Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you can add the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to terminate it if you no longer require it. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud platform, because it is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can use the platform for each script-powered app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a restriction as to how many instances you can get, you can make the most of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t experience any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will only need to add 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 address. In addition, our system will also set a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to view your applications’ output and to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint on the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
