Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there are many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like 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 if the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s required.
