Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms 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 negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each web hosting plan that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll 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 soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it is available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a few clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Since Hepsia is incredibly simple to use, you will be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without effort.
