Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously improve the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there are a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser games or live chat platforms, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.

The setup is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software.
