Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there are lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting package you’ve chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can add the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it in case you no longer require it.
