Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which process the info in massive hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when a huge number of people are visiting a site all at once. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that support quick live interaction.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with every cloud web hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to view any given app’s output.
