Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform intended for websites that support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any traditional platform, which can have an enormous influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared web hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to activate. 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 wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to check the output of any given app.
