Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are visiting a website simultaneously. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set the precise path to your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number specified by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an extremely user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can set it up with just several clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different web sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS hosting plans offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you have no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etcetera.
