Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of users are browsing a site at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting plans that we offer include Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the exact path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js app or check the running instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you run a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has specified a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed independently and you will obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
