Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser video games or web-based chat portals, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud plans that we’re offering include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js application or view the running instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly user-friendly graphical interface.
