Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a website at the same time. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which shared hosting package you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can define the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to disable it if you no longer want it. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting that we offer and you can set it up without any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you like, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You will need to add the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite simple to use, you will be able to make that without any difficulty, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use the 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 websites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
