Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it really does make a difference if a large number of individuals are navigating a website all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting packages offer Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you will have to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for many sites and enjoy an astonishing overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

As our servers are quite powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or stopped independently and you’ll obtain access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
