Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional systems that handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a website simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to stop it if you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our plans and you can order it with only a few clicks. In case you would like to use it for multiple websites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-driven software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t put a limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can add, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not have any difficulties while using the platform. You will just need to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you can see the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to insert the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit on the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
