Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that process the info in large chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of people are navigating a website at the same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance separately, if it’s necessary.

Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a random port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance separately.
