Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that allows running JavaScript code outside a web browser, that is, on the server side. This makes it useful for building fast and efficient applications.

Node.js requires root access to the hosting environment, for instance, to ensure all the libraries and modules are installed, updated and enabled. Since root access is not available on our Web, WordPress and Cloud hosting plans, the alternative is a virtual private server (VPS).

The performance of Node.js is also leveraged by the dedicated resources, flexibility and scalability of a VPS, so make sure to check our VPS plans to start using Node.js at Hostinger!
