Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are browsing a website simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to select the path to your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number given by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a really simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra fee when you acquire any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of using Node.js momentarily. By combining 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 possible performance.
