Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, 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 a large number of users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of users are using a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to cancel/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS packages that we’re offering and you can set it up without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven web applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
