Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it really does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time communication.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared plans that we offer include Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number assigned by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or check the running instances’ output with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
