Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of users are visiting a site simultaneously. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port chosen by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is exceptionally simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any complications, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our stunningly powerful machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
