Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that handle the information in large hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a website at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to select the precise path to your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port set by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, edit the path to the .js app or view the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
