Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge 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 platforms that process the info in large hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. 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 insignificant for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are using a site all at once. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, as it is included with each and every plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional cost when you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure.

Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you will have to do to set it up is define the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP.
