Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the information in large hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional 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 undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of users are visiting a site all at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting services offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of any of your applications or to deactivate/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-based web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put any limitation as to the number of instances that you can add, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t encounter any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply need to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to discontinue or to reboot any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
