Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output system used for sites which support live communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any other system, which can exert a great effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the location of the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather user-friendly interface.
