Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the information in large chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are using a website at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated 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 select if the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can check your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any Internet application that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t set a limit as to the number of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not come across any impediments while using the platform. You will simply need to insert the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you can check the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the location of the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total number of instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
