Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the info in large chunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. 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 a single user, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are using a website at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live communication.

A few minutes later, you’ll be able to add the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to delete it in case you no longer want it.
