Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, once any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time browser-based games or online chat platforms, for instance, and many corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Hepsia will also permit you to choose the exact location of your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number selected by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use graphical interface.
