Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the information in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of people are navigating a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

All Linux hosting packages that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this leading-edge platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port selected by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a rather simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this event-driven platform once your server is up and running. Since Hepsia is extremely user-friendly, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can set up as many instances as you wish on our very powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
