Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output system devised for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional system, which can exert a significant influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud plans offered by our company include Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to choose the precise path to your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly user-friendly graphical interface.
