Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system devised for sites that offer real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All Linux website hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to choose the exact path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the path to the .js app or check the running instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-use GUI.
