Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of users are using a website at the same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All Linux shared website hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the exact path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port specified by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you will need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will select a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the platform once your server is set up. Since Hepsia is incredibly simple to use, you will be able to make that without coming across any complications, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP 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 run as many Node.js instances as you need on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js effortlessly.
