Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of people are using a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you can add this innovative platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally simple-to-use interface.

After that, you will need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or terminated independently and you can see your apps’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our astonishingly powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
