Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a site at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every web hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to terminate an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s user-friendly GUI, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will set a random port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this platform as soon as your physical server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
