Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes 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 unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website at the very same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our packages and you can enable it with only a few clicks. If you want to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.

The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files.
