Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses 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 traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of users are using a site at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the exact location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js application or view the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a pretty easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans include Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS plans that we are offering and you can configure it without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, because Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by Node.js. You will have to define the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as the platform is built into our in-house built tool. As our servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you make use of numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
