Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are navigating a website at the very same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of each of your apps or to stop/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this platform once your dedicated machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to use, you will be able to make that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our super-powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
