Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there are many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser games or live chat platforms, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting packages that we’re offering include Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the path to your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number given by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or check the output of the running instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an extremely simple-to-navigate interface.
