Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven I/O platform designed for Internet sites which offer real-time communication. Some examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. When a given form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All Linux cloud website hosting that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to set the location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number set by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a very easy-to-navigate interface.
