Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that handle the info in massive chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, if a user has to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it absolutely does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a site all at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support fast real-time communication.

The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to stop it if you do not need it anymore.
