Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly boost the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser video games or live chat clients, for example, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you have chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to stop it if you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it is comes with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can view the output of your apps with just a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is offered as standard with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints regarding the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent option for managing different real-time script-driven applications and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You will just need to add the path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool.

The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or canceled independently and you’ll be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
