Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in just a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to insert the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
