Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are browsing a website at the same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our plans and you can order it with just a few mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-based software app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set a restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not have any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will just have to insert the 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 address. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to see the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction on the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
