Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it truly does make a difference if a huge number of people are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to terminate an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you will have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can check the output of your applications with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this event-driven platform once your physical server is up and running. Since Hepsia is really easy to work with, you will be able to do that without any impediments, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many instances as you wish on our very powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js without effort.
