Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it really does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are browsing a site all at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you will need to specify the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or shut down independently and you can view the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra charge in case you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is define the location of the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be selected automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
