Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O system intended for sites which offer live communication. A few examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional system, which can exert a serious effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance separately, if necessary.
