Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional 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 a single user, but it really does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a website simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if it’s needed.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put a restriction as to how many Node.js instances you can create, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not experience any difficulties while using the platform. You will just need to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you will be able to check the output of your apps and to deactivate or to reboot any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, since the platform is available in our in-house built tool. Since our servers are rather powerful, you will get great results even if you host plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you’ll be provided with access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
