Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, once any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser video games or online chats, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port selected by our cloud hosting system.

If you want to use it for multiple websites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as including the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your active instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one click.

All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP.

As Hepsia is really simple to use, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any complications, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the location of 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 websites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you need on our ultra-powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
