Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an immense number of people are navigating a site at the very same time. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you will be able to insert the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to discontinue it if you do not require it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
