Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser-based video games or online chat programs, for instance, and many companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of any of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance independently.
