Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a huge number of users are browsing a website at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud hosting packages offered by us come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this cutting-edge platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to set the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly easy-to-use interface.
