Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a site at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared packages that we offer come with Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the precise path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it is included with each package offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is integrated into our in-house built tool. As our servers are really powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deleted separately and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
