Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the info in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are using a site at the very same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting packages that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this innovative platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port selected by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally intuitive graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can make full use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will set a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for any script-based application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t put a limitation on the number of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not need to deal with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just have to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also allocate a port to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can uncover its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etcetera.
