Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other 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 negligible for a single user, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared service that we are offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the exact location of your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can order it with only a couple of mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different sites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as including the path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with each of the Linux VPS service offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of sites and enjoy a fabulous performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use this platform once your server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use the 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 web sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our astonishingly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js with no effort.
