Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, 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 a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are navigating a site at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All Linux shared website hosting plans that we offer include Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port specified by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a truly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can order it with just several clicks. If you’d like to use it for several sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations as to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an ideal solution for running numerous real-time script-based web applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will just have to indicate the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many instances as you wish on our powerful machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
