Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system used for sites which support live communication. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert a noticeable impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All Linux cloud website hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number selected by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or see the output of the active instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally intuitive graphical interface.
