Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any info is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there are plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat systems, for example, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting plan you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can specify the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to disable it if you do not require it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single click.

Then, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address.
