Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of people are browsing a website at the very same time. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the precise path to your .js app 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 number designated by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can view the output of your apps with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy an exceptional performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is quite easy to work with, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add 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 websites. You can manage as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
