Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms 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 negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are using a site simultaneously. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting packages that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to set the path to your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the active instances with only several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for multiple web sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as indicating the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to reboot and to discontinue any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.
