Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms 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 insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a website at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All Linux cloud website hosting packages offered by our company come with Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to select the location of your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port selected by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a really intuitive graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given app’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect solution for running different real-time Internet applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you want to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You’ll only need to enter the path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also choose a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you can uncover its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to specify the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etc.
