Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of users are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every shared web hosting plan offered by us, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud platform, because it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can view the output of a given app or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can run Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting packages offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 random access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for lots of sites and enjoy a fabulous performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can uncover its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
