Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a site all at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package offered by us, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you use many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you will be granted with access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
