Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a site at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that support fast live communication.

Hepsia will also permit you to choose the precise path to your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or see the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is very simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our extremely powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
