Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a site simultaneously. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live interaction.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared packages offered by us come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the precise location of your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js application or see the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-navigate GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of any of your apps or to remove/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 couple of clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a magnificent overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly graphical interface, which will enable you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with just a click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you will have to do to activate it is define the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be allocated automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js instantly.
