Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a large number of users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are navigating a website all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that offer quick live communication.

You can use Node.js with every cloud hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish 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 need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see any given app’s output.
