Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of people are visiting a site at the same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting package you’ve chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you no longer want it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to include 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 that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS packages that we offer and you can configure it without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, since Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many software apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance provided by Node.js. You will have to include the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as this platform is available in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are really powerful, you will get great performance even if you run numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped independently and you will obtain access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
