Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info 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 when a huge number of users are navigating a site all at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-based app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed any limit on the number of instances that you can use, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you will not come across any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to insert the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just a click, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since this platform is integrated into our custom tool. Since our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy great performance even if you host multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or shut down independently and you will be given access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
