Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which process the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user has to fill several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if an enormous number of people are browsing a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast live communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every cloud hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to view the output of any given application.
