Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly improve the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based games or online chats, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

In case you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can get more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application.

The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not come across any problems while using the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to discontinue or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be selected automatically too and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
