Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of users are using a website at the very same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting packages that we offer support Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number specified by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an amazingly simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for running multiple real-time script-powered apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll simply need to specify the path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the applications and to restart or to remove any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any obstacles, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can create as many instances as you need on our amazingly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
