Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference if a large number of people are browsing a site all at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You can use Node.js with each hosting plan that we offer, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to deactivate/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use the event-driven platform for each web-based application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a limitation on how many instances you can use, you can make the most of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not need to cope with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll just have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also select a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only a click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to stop or to reboot any instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to add the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
