Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the info in large chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of people are browsing a website at once. Several examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Hosting
As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve selected during the registration process.

A couple of minutes afterwards, you can include the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t need it anymore.
