Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it really does make a difference if an enormous number of users are using a site at the very same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that the system can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is included by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal choice for managing numerous real-time script-powered applications and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll only have to insert the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
