Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional 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 user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of users are navigating a site at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting service that we offer include Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to set the exact path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather easy-to-navigate GUI.

You can choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Our system will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications.

As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you’ll be given access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
