Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you wish to order. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated 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 will have to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also designate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS packages that we are offering and you can configure it without any problem, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, since Hepsia has an intuitive, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll have to include the directory path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this platform as soon as your dedicated server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly intuitive, you will be able to do that without any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our astonishingly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
