Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, 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 negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of people are using a site simultaneously. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every website hosting package that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it is included with each and every plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for numerous websites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to stop or to restart any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to specify the directory 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 specify 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 Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and many others.
