Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional 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 user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of users are using a site at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to use it for different web sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.

The configuration requires a few clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deleted independently and you will obtain access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
