Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of users are using a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you’d like to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of each of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance separately.

You’ll need to define the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
