Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of people are visiting a website at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which website hosting package you’ve picked upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to add the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you no longer want it. You will also acquire access to the output code with only a single click.

The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to remove/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting

All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for many sites and enjoy an impressive performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or terminated separately and you will be granted with access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
