Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which handle the info in large hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a huge number of individuals are browsing a website at the very same time. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time interaction.

You can select the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the path to your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud hosting platform.
