Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's 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 contrast to traditional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of people are using a site at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each website hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see any given app’s output.
