Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a web app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the folder 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. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of sites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly graphical interface, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will need to do to activate it is indicate the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily.
