Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system used for Internet sites that support live interaction. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional system, which can have a tremendous influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you are able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the precise path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js app or see the running instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-use interface.
