Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a site all at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you’ve picked during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you do not need it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will designate a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to delete/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS plans that we’re offering and you can activate it without needing to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you want, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You will need to add the path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual 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 activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software applications at no additional cost if you order any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/delete/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is insert the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be allocated automatically too and you will see the benefits of running Node.js straight away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
