Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional 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 negligible for one single user, but it really does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it with only a couple of clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for managing different real-time script-powered apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You will simply have to specify the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get any of our dedicated servers for your script-based web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since the platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you will enjoy stunning results even if you make use of many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will receive access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
