Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website expands and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chats, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no additional fee if you obtain any of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you have to do to activate it is insert the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
