Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other 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 negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are navigating a website at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every shared hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or terminated independently and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any script-powered software app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put any limit as to how many instances you can make use of, you can take advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t need to deal with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to enter the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click, you can view the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is available in our in-house built tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you will get superb performance even if you run many Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped independently and you will get access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
