Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O system built for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional system, which can exert a substantial impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will go through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to switch off an instance and to check the output of any given app.
