Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that process the information in large chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are using a website all at once. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting plan you’ve chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it if you no longer want it. You will also be given access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or deleted independently and you can see your apps’ output with just a couple of clicks.
