Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single user, but it indeed does make a difference when a large number of people are using a site at once. A couple of instances of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick real-time interaction.

A few minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to terminate it if you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a mouse click.
