Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform used for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we offer support Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to set the path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port assigned by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally intuitive interface.
