Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems 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 person, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a site at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js app and to choose 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 number chosen by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a very intuitive interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can make full use of the power that Node.js can give you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations as to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for setting up different real-time script-driven applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only have to add the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.
