Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the information in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other 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 person, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of users are navigating a site at the very same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy any of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is built into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy superb performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you will receive access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
