Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are visiting a website at the very same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All Linux website hosting that we offer include Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also permit you to select the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally user-friendly graphical interface.

If you wish to use it for several websites, you can get more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to get new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Servers

A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many sites and enjoy an impressive overall performance.

The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/stop/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is include the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
