Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a site at the same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting packages that we’re offering include Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a pretty easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, as it is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t set a limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t experience any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to add the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your server is assembled. Since Hepsia is really easy to work with, you will be able to make that without having any difficulty, even if you have never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
