Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging applications, for example, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting

The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to specify the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to delete it in case you do not require it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.
