Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans offered by us include Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also permit you to choose the precise location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a pretty user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our packages and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can see your apps’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-powered software app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put a restriction on the amount of instances that you can add, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not have to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You will only need to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you can view the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to specify the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total amount of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
