Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chats, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Hepsia will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
