Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms 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 insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared website hosting plan offered by our company, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to switch off an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to make use of one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, as this platform is built into our in-house developed tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you will enjoy stunning results even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or terminated separately and you’ll be provided with access to a detailed output log for each app that uses Node.js.
