Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of users are using a website simultaneously. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI, you will need to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for managing numerous real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll only need to insert the path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the apps’ output and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
