Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s needed.

You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
