Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can noticeably boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, the second any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and a lot of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to view the output of any given application.
