Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the info in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of people are using a site at the same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud platform, you can take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you will need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of each of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers offered by us and you can activate it without any complications, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based software apps as you like, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll have to include the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
