Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the info in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a website at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting services offered by our company support Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the precise location of your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, edit the path to the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a truly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it is available with each and every plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting services on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you’ll have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etcetera.
