Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, other systems 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 negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of people are using a site at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting services that we are offering support Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the path to your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deleted separately and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is offered by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations as to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for running numerous real-time web-based apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll simply need to specify the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port number 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. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra fee in case you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-navigate interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is define the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
