Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if a huge number of people are visiting a site all at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting offered by our company include Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise location of your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely intuitive interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud platform, as it’s available with each plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations with regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect choice for running numerous real-time script-powered web applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You will simply need to add the path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to indicate the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
