Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are visiting a site at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that offer quick live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All Linux shared website hosting packages that we’re offering support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to select the precise path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
