Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser-based games or online chat platforms, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can set it up with just several mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to enter the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers

The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will have full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and so on.
