Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems 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 negligible for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are browsing a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support fast live interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each hosting package offered by our company, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to delete an instance and to see any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can get it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for different Internet sites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.

Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is indicate the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP.
