Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are browsing a site at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the exact path to your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port set by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, edit the path to the .js application or view the running instances’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an incredibly easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for each script-driven web app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not put any limitation on how many instances 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 through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only have to add the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to see your apps’ output and to delete or to restart any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as this platform is incorporated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our servers are quite powerful, you’ll get great performance even if you run numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you will have access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
