Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output system intended for Internet sites which support real-time communication. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can have a tremendous impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Website Hosting
You can use Node.js with every website hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to check any given app’s output.
