Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources 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 really does make a difference when a huge number of people are browsing a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can select the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web apps at no extra fee if you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will allow you to start/delete/reboot any instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you need to do to set it up is add the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you will see the benefits of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
