Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other 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 insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are navigating a website all at once. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service include Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can give you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans an excellent option for setting up numerous real-time web-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you wish 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 indicate the folder path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to add the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
