Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform intended for sites which support real-time communication. Some examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other system, which can have a serious effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to choose the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number set by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a pretty simple-to-use interface.
