Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when a huge number of people are using a site at the very same time. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans offered by us support Node.js and you are able to add this innovative platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the precise location of your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port assigned by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is included with each plan that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can set it up without any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an intuitive, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will have to add the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
