Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, conventional 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 negligible for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of individuals are navigating a site at the very same time. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can select the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance independently, if it is needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have created.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can activate it without having to cope with any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, as Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You have to include the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers

As our servers are truly powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll be provided with access to a detailed output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
