Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information 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 if a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer fast live interaction.

The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. 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 server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it if you do not require it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with only one mouse click.
