Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, 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 absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of people are browsing a website simultaneously. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans that we are offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the path to your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number set by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting plans that we offer and you can set it up without any impediments, even if you’ve never used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-use, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You have to include the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform once your physical server is up and running. Since Hepsia is extremely user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many instances as you need on our incredibly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
