Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O platform designed for sites which offer real-time communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared to any other platform, which can have an enormous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Hosting
All hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the exact location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an amazingly simple-to-use GUI.
