Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable 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 conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in large hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of users are visiting a site at the very same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All Linux shared website hosting packages that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu 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 different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the precise location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a quite simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated packages come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

You can get Node.js with any of the VPS offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the 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 one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of websites and enjoy an impressive performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
