Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 really does make a difference if an immense number of people are using a site at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our innovative cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, if necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you can unveil its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, etc.
