Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which process the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a site at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can add the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it if you no longer want it. You’ll also have access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just several clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for different web sites, you can enable more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to discontinue any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for each script-powered software application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any limit as to the number of instances that you can run, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not encounter any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to enter 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. In addition, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you can view the output of your applications and to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the server.

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 very simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
