Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can specify the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to deactivate it in case you do not want it any longer. You will also acquire access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no additional fee in case you obtain any 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 Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/stop/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll need to do to set it up is indicate the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
