Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms 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 one single person, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a site at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting plans that we’re offering include Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to pick the precise location of your .js application and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it comes with each package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are 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 Servers

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS plans that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select 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 designated automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of websites and enjoy an impressive performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its true potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to indicate the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction on the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
