Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the information in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an immense number of people are browsing a site all at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should go through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to stop an instance and to view any given application’s output.
