Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems 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 a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are visiting a site simultaneously. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which shared hosting package you have selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you can specify the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not want it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with only one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a random port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of any of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-based web application that you host on the VPS. As we have not set any limit on the amount of instances that you can get, you can use the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not encounter any impediments while using the platform. You will only have to insert the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you can check the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is rather simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without coming across any complications, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our exceptionally powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without any effort.
