Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser games or live chat platforms, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

You can make use of Node.js with every website hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one.
