Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or web-based chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

All hosting plans offered by our company support Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set the exact location of your .js application and to choose whether 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 assigned by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the location of the .js application or view the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an amazingly simple-to-use graphical interface.
