Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are navigating a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting package you have chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to pick the IP address to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans offer Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate 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 enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of websites and enjoy an amazing performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is built into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you’ll enjoy great results even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you’ll be granted with access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
