Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if an immense number of users are visiting a website simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for different web sites, you can create more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point-and-click interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will need to include the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your server is assembled. As Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
