Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the info in large hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a site at the same time. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can see your applications’ output with only a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to work with.

A random access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a terrific overall performance.

Since Hepsia is exceptionally simple to use, you will be able to do that without coming across any complications, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our super-powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
