Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of users are browsing a site at the same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting offered by us include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise path to your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or view the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, because it comes with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for managing numerous real-time applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons without any prior experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll only have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
