Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems that handle the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user has to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it really does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are visiting a site all at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that offer fast live communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared website hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to see any given application’s output.
