Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it really does make a difference if a large number of users are browsing a website at the same time. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to stop an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of any of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you’ve got no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no extra cost if you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/deactivate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is specify the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP.
