Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a website all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which hosting plan you have picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to add the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it if you do not want it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of any of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS packages that we offer and you can configure it without having any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers a simple-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web apps as you need, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You have to include the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional charge in case you purchase any of our Linux dedicated hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-use GUI, which will permit you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is enter the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
