Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any information is entered in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there’re plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat platforms, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.
