Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site expands and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js with each web hosting plan that we offer, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to remove an instance and to view any given application’s output.
