Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other 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 a single user, but it truly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a site at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web 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 particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js app or check the running instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can order it with only several mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple sites, you can enable more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any script-based application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put any limitation on how many Node.js instances you can use, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will just need to specify the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to stop or to reboot any instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as this platform is incorporated into our in-house built tool. As our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or removed separately and you’ll receive access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
