Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or web-based chat clients, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
