Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser video games or live chat software, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to delete an instance and to view any given application’s output.
