Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional 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 a single person, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a website at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the location of your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number set by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a really user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we are offering and you can activate it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software apps as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll need to enter the location of the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-based software applications at no extra fee when you buy any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will permit you to start/delete/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is add the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be assigned automatically too and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
