Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser games or online chat portals, for example, and many companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it’s required.
