Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, other platforms 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 negligible for a single user, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you can add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the precise path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number given by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or deleted independently and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an exceptional overall performance.
