Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other 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 insignificant for one single user, but it actually does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are using a site simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting plans that we’re offering support Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the path to your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it comes with each and every semi-dedicated package offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with such software, as Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include 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 limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform once your server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty simple to use, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
