Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you can add this innovative platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number assigned by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js application or view the output of the active instances with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a really intuitive graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it is available with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple sites and enjoy an excellent overall performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to indicate the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
