Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. 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 negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select the number of instances that you want 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 if the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/restart each instance separately.

You’ll need to define the location of the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Since the Hepsia Control Panel is very user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any complications, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you wish on our amazingly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
