Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems that process the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, 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 insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are navigating a site at the same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting packages that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the exact path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js application or check the output of the running instances with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this platform for each script-based software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t imposed any restriction as to how many instances you can add, you can make full use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any impediments while working with the platform. You will simply have to specify the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also specify a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you can check your applications’ output and to deactivate or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Defining the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or removed separately and you will get access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
