Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are visiting a site at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it in case you don’t need it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can order it with only several clicks. If you’d like to use it for several websites, you can get more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of sites and enjoy an amazing performance.

As our servers are very powerful, you’ll get great performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
