Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a website all at once. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you can define the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you no longer need it. You’ll also get access to the output code with only one mouse click.

The configuration is as easy as including the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to deactivate any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your applications with just a click.

Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or terminated independently and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
