Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a website at the same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can make full use of the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to add 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 IP. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-based app that you host on the VPS. As we have not imposed any limitation as to the number of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t have any difficulties while using the platform. You’ll just need to insert the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to check your apps’ output and to stop or to reboot any instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven web apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as this event-driven platform is included in our custom tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you host many Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you’ll be granted with access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
