Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system designed for sites that offer real-time communication. Some instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional platform, which can have an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we offer include Node.js and you will be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the path to your .js app and to select if 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 selected by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, modify the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an amazingly intuitive GUI.
