Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven I/O system meant for websites that support real-time communication. A few instances of such websites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other system, which can exert a serious effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud plans offered by our company come with Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port given by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally intuitive GUI.
