Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser games or live chat clients, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to add the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with just a few clicks. In case you would like to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as specifying the location of your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will permit you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

The platform can be used for as many script-powered web apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You need to include the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

The latter has an amazingly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limit on the total amount of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
