Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of users are visiting a website at the very same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can get it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no additional cost if you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a user-friendly interface, which will permit you to start/stop/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
