Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a site simultaneously. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud web hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given application.
