Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, other systems 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 a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of users are using a website simultaneously. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting services offered by us include Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise location of your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port given by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can create more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as including the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting that we offer 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 a few mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limit as to how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy an impressive performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting services on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
