Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the information in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if a huge number of people are browsing a site at once. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you have selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to disable it if you do not need it any longer. You will also be given access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also set a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given application’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve activated.
