Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live communication.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by us, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can set it up with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as entering the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance that Node.js offers. You will have to enter the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-work-with interface, which will enable you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is include the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
