Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the location of your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port designated by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a rather easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can enable it with only several mouse clicks. If you want to use it for different websites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as indicating the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one single click.
