Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference when a huge number of users are navigating a website all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting services that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to pick the exact location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for different Internet applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or shut down independently and you can view your apps’ output with only a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting services that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting 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 do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to work with. 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 IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many websites and enjoy a magnificent overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
