Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time browser video games or instant messengers, for example, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to specify the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to terminate it in case you do not require it any longer. You will also receive access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

This makes our VPS plans an excellent choice for hosting different real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You will only need to enter the path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Since Hepsia is really easy to use, you will be able to do that without any complications, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
