Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any information is entered in any of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there are numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time browser-based video games or instant messengers, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Several minutes later, you will be able to add the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to disable it in case you do not want it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only one mouse click.
