Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are navigating a site at the same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which hosting package you have chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to add the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you do not need it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it comes with each semi-dedicated plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-based web app that you host on the VPS. As we have not put any limitation as to how many Node.js instances you can activate, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not need to cope with any difficulties while using the platform. You will just need to insert the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you can see your apps’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since the event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool. As our dedicated servers are truly powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you run a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or shut down independently and you’ll have access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
