Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional 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 insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of users are using a website at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port given by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly user-friendly graphical interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since this platform is available in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are really powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you manage many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has designated a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued independently and you’ll have access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
