Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from 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 large number of users are visiting a website at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number chosen by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an extremely easy-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can check the output of your applications with just several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS servers that we are offering and you can activate it without any complications, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, since Hepsia has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You need to enter the location of the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this platform once your server is up and running. As Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the location of 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 websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you wish on our stunningly powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
