Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a website at the very same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every website hosting package offered by our company, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with several clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to suspend an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, because it is comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can see your apps’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers

As the Hepsia Control Panel is quite simple to work with, you will be able to make that without encountering any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 web sites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
