Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of users are navigating a site all at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect solution for hosting multiple real-time script-driven web applications and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You’ll simply have to specify the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a given port number 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 apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to reboot or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-driven software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is included in our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are very powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed independently and you’ll have access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
