Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms that process the information in giant chunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a site at the same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live interaction.

All cloud website hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact location of your .js app 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 randomly generated port number designated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really easy-to-use interface.
