Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It uses 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 other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a site simultaneously. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting offered by us support Node.js and you will be able to add this cutting-edge platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js application or see the running instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly intuitive graphical interface.

If you’d like to use it for several sites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as indicating the location of your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to shut down any of your running instances, to order new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal solution for running multiple real-time Internet applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only have to add the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use GUI, which will permit you to start/deactivate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is add the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll see the benefits of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
