Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there’re numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser video games or online chat clients, for example, and many corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.
