Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web applications. 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 efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional 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 negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference if an immense number of users are visiting a site at the very same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast live communication.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you do not want it any longer. You will also have access to the output code with just a single click.

The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you will need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

This makes our VPS packages an excellent choice for managing multiple real-time script-driven web applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to include the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
