Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser games or live chat software, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to see any given app’s output.
