Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in large hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs 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 resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 certainly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to add the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to shut it down in case you no longer want it. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it with only several mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for different sites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS services that we are offering and you can set it up without any impediments, even if you have never worked with it before, since Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll need to specify the directory path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since this platform is incorporated into our custom tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or removed independently and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
