Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For example, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are navigating a website at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick live communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s necessary.

You can set up as many instances as you need on our amazingly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
