Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, 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 insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of users are navigating a website all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the 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 it and to select if the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface, you will need to indicate 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 one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your applications or to delete/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting that we offer and you can configure it without needing to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point-and-click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to add the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to specify the directory path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etcetera.
