Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user has to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference if a large number of users are browsing a site all 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 offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting services come with Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to make full use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will set a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect choice for hosting different real-time applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to include the path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll enjoy superb results even if you manage numerous Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has set a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or canceled separately and you’ll obtain access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
