Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform designed for sites that support live communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can exert a great influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each web hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to terminate an instance and to view any given app’s output.
