Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites which support interactive communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional system, which can have a substantial influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting plan offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view any given app’s output.
