Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, the second any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser games or live chat software, for example, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud website hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to add. 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 want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to terminate an instance and to view any given app’s output.
