Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a huge number of people are using a website at once. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise location of your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number specified by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an extremely user-friendly interface.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of websites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.
