Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of users are visiting a site all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also set a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering and you can configure it without coming across any problem, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, because Hepsia offers an easy-to-use, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will have to define the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our exceptionally powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
