Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in large hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled 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 actually does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are using a website at once. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve selected during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to access the 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 can reboot an instance or to cancel it if you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can make full use of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface, you’ll have to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we are offering and you can activate it without having any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, because Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are truly powerful, you will get great results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll have access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses Node.js.
