Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform intended for websites that offer real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional system, which can have a tremendous effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared plans that we’re offering include Node.js and you are able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js app and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port assigned by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the location of the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather simple-to-use graphical interface.
