Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique 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 out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional 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 insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of people are using a site at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to delete it if you no longer require it. You will also have access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans include Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions when it comes to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal choice for setting up different real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You will simply have to include the location of the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the platform once your machine is up and running. As Hepsia is rather intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with ease.
