Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, other platforms 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 negligible for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when a huge number of people are visiting a site at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer quick real-time interaction.

You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the precise location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port specified by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or see the output of the active instances with only several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a pretty user-friendly GUI.

This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.

The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our stunningly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
