Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform built for sites that support live interaction. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional system, which can exert a noticeable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to stop an instance and to check any given app’s output.
