Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and many corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

You can make this from the Upgrades section 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 service to your account. You can select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s required.
