Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and many corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which website hosting plan you have picked upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to define the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to stop it in case you no longer want it. You will also be given access to the output code with just a click.

The feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s user-friendly graphical interface, you will have to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your applications or to terminate/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS

This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for running multiple real-time applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll simply need to enter the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the apps’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our incredibly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without effort.
