Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a site at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you’ve chosen at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to define the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to disable it if you do not require it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can set it up with only several mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for several web sites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS services that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to remove or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this platform once your machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is exceptionally user-friendly, you will be able to make that without having any problem, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you wish on our astonishingly powerful servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
