Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O system meant for sites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the web 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 info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a serious influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting plans that we’re offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the exact location of your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number specified by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js app or view the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a very user-friendly GUI.
