Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of users are navigating a site at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every web hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d 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 website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is included with each and every semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to include 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 if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to check a given application’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for administering different real-time script-powered web applications and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You will simply need to enter the location of the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the applications’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

The configuration takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
