Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the information in huge chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of users are visiting a site at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can give you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will set a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance separately.

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is available in our custom tool.

The setup requires a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
