Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system meant for sites which offer live interaction. Several examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the site substantially. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can have a great effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You can use Node.js with every shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you’d like to add. 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 like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to view the output of any given application.
