Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, once any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser games or online chat portals, for example, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a web 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 web hosting account regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can order it with only a few clicks. In case you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is included by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect option for running multiple real-time apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You will just need to add the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a certain port number 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 permit you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to stop any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the location of the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
