Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, 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 insignificant for a single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a website simultaneously. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time communication.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see any given app’s output.
