Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the info in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms 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 a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are visiting a site at the same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting packages offered by us come with Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the path to your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really simple-to-use interface.

Then, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deleted independently and you can view the output of your apps with only several clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed.

Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to add the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
