Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the info in large hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a website simultaneously. A couple of examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to enter the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or terminated independently and you can view your apps’ output with only several clicks.

You’ll simply need to include the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also allocate a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to check your applications’ output and to delete or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

The latter has a very simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to define the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation on the total number of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etcetera.
