Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a site at the same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with every shared website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-powered app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put a limitation on the number of instances that you can set up, you can make use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply need to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to remove or to reboot any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
