Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it really does make a difference when a huge number of people are navigating a site all at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you have chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can enter the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to disable it if you do not need it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can set it up with only several mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for different websites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting services that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-based web app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put a limit on how many Node.js instances you can add, you can make full use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to indicate the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also assign a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can see the output of your apps and to shut down or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. As Hepsia is really easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without coming across any predicaments, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our ultra-powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without any effort.
