Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in huge hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of users are navigating a site at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared web hosting plan you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to disable it in case you don’t require it anymore. You will also be provided with access to the output code with just a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it is is included with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or shut down separately and you can check your applications’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.

As Hepsia is pretty easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites.
