Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, when a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance separately.

The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll need to indicate the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is integrated into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it really easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or shut down independently and you’ll obtain access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
