Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of individuals are visiting a site simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to set the location of your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port chosen by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will be able to make use 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 package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also select a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check a given application’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty intuitive, you will be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
