Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are navigating a site at the same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting offered by us include Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number allocated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-use interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will need to add the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for each software app that you host on the VPS. As we have not set a limitation as to the number of instances that you can get, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t encounter any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to specify the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you can view the output of your applications and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS.

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no additional fee when you purchase any of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be designated automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of using Node.js immediately. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
