Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 one single user, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are navigating a site at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to select the location of your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a really easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it is available with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to enter the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can check the output of your applications with just several mouse clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. As our servers are unbelievably powerful, you will get stunning results even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or shut down independently and you will get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
