Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field as soon as it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference if an immense number of people are browsing a site all at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a random port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your applications or to remove/reboot each instance separately.
