Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based video games or web-based chat systems, for example, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting service offered by us support Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the exact location of your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a very easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you will need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of each of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting service offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many websites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is included in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you manage many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or canceled separately and you will receive access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
