Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it certainly does make a difference when a large number of people are navigating a website at the same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the platform as soon as your physical machine is set up. As Hepsia is very easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
