Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser-based games or web-based chat clients, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, regardless of which website hosting plan you have chosen at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you no longer require it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only one click.
