Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a site at the very same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can define the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you do not require it any longer. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to remove/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering and you can set it up without needing to deal with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many applications as you like, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You need to define the directory path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to specify the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
