Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, other 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 user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are navigating a website at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting packages offered by us come with Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the precise location of your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number set by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a pretty intuitive interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for several sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS

You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is really intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many websites and enjoy a splendid performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the platform as soon as your server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our super-powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with ease.
