Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field as soon as it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that need fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port assigned by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate GUI.
