Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or live chat platforms, for example, and many companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have picked during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can add the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you no longer require it. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a click.
