Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet 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 effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the information in large hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a website at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you have chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file 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 menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it if you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will have to enter 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 one. Our platform will set a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting service that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is really intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a fantastic overall performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
