Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are using a website at the same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that the system can give you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you will have to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will assign a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of any of your applications or to stop/restart each instance separately.
