Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there are lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser games or instant messengers, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll need to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can see the output of your applications with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
