Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the info in large chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it really does make a difference if a large number of users are visiting a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to set the path to your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an amazingly user-friendly graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated server plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS

You can get Node.js with each of the Linux VPS that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for plenty of sites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to define the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, etc.
