Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in massive hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are navigating a site at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each cloud web hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given application.
