Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems 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 a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of users are browsing a website simultaneously. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, as it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra charge in case you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an intuitive interface, which will enable you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is indicate the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be set automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js straight away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
