Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill several fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of users are visiting a website at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live communication.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our advanced cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, if necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can see your applications’ output with only several mouse clicks.

The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You need to insert the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

The setup takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Defining the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
