Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems 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 one single user, but it truly does make a difference when a large number of users are browsing a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud packages that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to choose the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port selected by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to view a given application’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to indicate the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, etcetera.
