Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O system used for websites that support live interaction. A few instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any traditional platform, which can have a significant influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each website hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check the output of any given application.
