Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of people are visiting a site at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each website hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.
