Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a website at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud web hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to suspend an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can activate it with just several clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can get more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as this event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll get stunning performance even if you make use of numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or stopped independently and you will be given access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
