Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat apps, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can specify the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you do not want it any longer. You will also have access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
