Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain 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. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your active instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an optimal option for running numerous real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks to do it. You’ll only have to add the location of the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also choose a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated hosting services for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as the event-driven platform is built into our custom-built tool. Since our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you will get excellent results even if you use plenty of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
