Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messengers, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Hepsia will also enable you to set the path to your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port specified by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the path to the .js app or see the running instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely easy-to-navigate GUI.

If you would like to use it for different web sites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as including the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software.

This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal choice for setting up different real-time script-powered web apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply need to specify the folder path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one.

Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to add the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
