Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Several instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one giant 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 one. Therefore, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any traditional platform, which can exert a tremendous influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every cloud website hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you would like to run. 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 like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given application.
