Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of people are navigating a site at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the precise path to your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port designated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your apps or to stop/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by us and you can set it up without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point & click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven software apps as you need, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will have to indicate the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. Since our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you host multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or removed independently and you’ll be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
