Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the info in large hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of users are using a site at once. Several instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared services offered by our company come with Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact location of your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port set by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an extremely intuitive GUI.
