Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in 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 when a huge number of users are using a site simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you have chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to specify the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t want it any longer. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can get it with just several clicks of the mouse. If you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can enable more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can configure it without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have never used it before, as Hepsia offers an intuitive, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will have to define the directory path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web applications at no extra cost if you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only a click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is include the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be assigned automatically too and you will see the advantages of running Node.js instantly. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
