Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there’re lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser games or live chat systems, for example, and many companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Hepsia will also enable you to select the exact path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port specified by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js app or view the running instances’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an extremely simple-to-navigate interface.

You’ll only need to indicate the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address.

The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience.
