Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with only several clicks. In case you would like to use it for several web sites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous websites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to use one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is built into our in-house built tool. As our dedicated servers are pretty powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you run a lot of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you will get access to an in-depth output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
