Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional systems that handle the info in large hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a huge number of people are navigating a website at the very same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every hosting plan offered by our company, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check any given application’s output.
