Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website expands and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chats, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the location of your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud hosting platform.

In case you want to use it for different sites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as entering the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.
