Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at the very same time. A couple of examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that need quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting plans that we are offering include Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to set the precise location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port specified by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js app or view the active instances’ output with only several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-use GUI.
