Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 really does make a difference when an enormous number of users are using a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting plans that we offer include Node.js and you are able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the precise location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also select a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect option for building different real-time script-based applications and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no previous experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just need to add the path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the output of the apps and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
