Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other 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 one single user, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a website at the very same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you wish to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans offer Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with only a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of each of your apps or to stop/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to make use of one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, as the platform is incorporated into our custom-developed tool. As our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you run lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or terminated separately and you’ll receive access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
