Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform intended for sites which offer real-time communication. A few examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other system, which can exert a considerable effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port assigned by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a very intuitive graphical interface.
