Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other systems 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 negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every website hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to insert 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 this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to indicate the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etcetera.
