Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the precise path to your .js app and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number selected by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, edit the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a quite simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you’ll need to enter the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal solution for administering multiple real-time web-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You will just need to include the location of the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint on the total amount of instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
