Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based games or live chat software, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Hepsia will also allow you to set the exact location of your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud platform.
