Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O system devised for sites which support live interaction. Some instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can exert a significant influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with every cloud website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check any given application’s output.
