Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it surely does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are using a site at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you are using.

You will be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
