Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are browsing a site at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this platform once your physical machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very easy to work with, you will be able to make that without having any predicaments, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
