Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, traditional 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 a single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when an enormous number of users are using a site at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.
