Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system meant for websites which support live interaction. A few instances of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one giant 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. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional platform, which can exert a significant impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the precise location of your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port assigned by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a very intuitive interface.
