Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional 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 one single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are visiting a website simultaneously. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to delete it in case you do not require it anymore. You will also have access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can activate it with just several mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for different Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if 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 do not have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-based application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a restriction on how many Node.js instances you can run, you can use the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t experience any obstacles while working with the platform. You will just need to include the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also assign a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can see your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to use one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will get superb performance even if you manage many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or canceled separately and you’ll acquire access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
