Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when 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 inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of users are using a site all at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to set the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number selected by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or check the active instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you will have to indicate 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 IP. Our platform will designate a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to restart any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to enter the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll exert complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
