Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional 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 one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of users are visiting a website at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans support Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages an ideal option for hosting multiple real-time script-driven apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll simply need to enter the path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use this platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty user-friendly, you will be able to make that without having any obstacles, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our incredibly powerful machines and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with ease.
