Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it truly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at the very same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated services support Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface, you will have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will set a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy an amazing performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to stop or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since our servers are exceptionally powerful, you will enjoy superb performance even if you manage numerous Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or shut down separately and you’ll acquire access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
