Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are using a site simultaneously. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is included with each plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect solution for administering multiple real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to insert the location of the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated hosting services on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
