Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser games or live chat apps, for instance, and a lot of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can define the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to shut it down if you do not want it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with only one click.
