Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there are many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser games or live chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will go through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check any given application’s output.
