Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when an immense number of users are visiting a site simultaneously. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, regardless of which web hosting plan you have picked during the registration process.

A few minutes afterwards, you can specify the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you do not need it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a single mouse click.

In case you want to use it for several sites, you can add more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to check your apps’ output with just a click.

All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy a wonderful performance.

Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you’ll be given access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
