Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can substantially enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there are numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.
