Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it actually does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared web hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering and you can configure it without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has a user-friendly, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll have to specify the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit on the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
