Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, traditional 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 surely does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a website simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All Linux website hosting packages that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port set by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a really user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive GUI, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS packages that we offer and you can activate it without any problem, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, as Hepsia has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll need to include the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered applications at no additional charge when you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is enter the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
