Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional 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 a single user, but it certainly does make a difference when a huge number of people are navigating a website at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to the 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 add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s necessary.
