Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable 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 much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, traditional 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 a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of people are browsing a site at the very same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated packages come with Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS that we are offering and you can activate it without any impediments, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based software apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance that Node.js provides. You need to enter the path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is integrated into our custom-built tool. As our servers are very powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has set a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you will acquire access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
