Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of users are using a site all at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting packages offered by us support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to select the exact path to your .js application and to choose if 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 set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an incredibly intuitive interface.

In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is offered 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 websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans an excellent option for hosting numerous real-time script-powered web apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You will only need to enter the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also select a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps.

The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to insert the location of 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 assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction on the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
