Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is available with each semi-dedicated package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have activated.

Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any predicaments, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with no effort.
