Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the information in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a site at the very same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the precise location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number given by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use interface.
