Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud website hosting package you have picked upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to insert the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you do not want it any longer. You will also get access to the output code with just one click.

The activation is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to get new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Our system will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps.

The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our incredibly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
