Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging programs, for example, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you’re using.

You’ll be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.
