Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. 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 remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of users are using a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set the exact location of your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port given by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js application or view the output of the running instances with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an amazingly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is included by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal solution for running multiple real-time script-based web applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You will just have to enter the folder path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no extra charge when you get any of our dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an intuitive GUI, which will allow you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you have to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of using Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
