Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a website all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a random port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to remove/reboot each instance independently.
