Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other 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 person, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a web app on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. If you’d like to use it for multiple websites, you can enable more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as including the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS plans that we offer and you can set it up without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many web apps as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You have to include the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one 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 give you full control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven apps at no additional cost in case you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to set it up is add the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
