Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or online chat software, for instance, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

A couple of minutes later, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not require it any longer.
