Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform built for sites which offer live interaction. Some examples of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can have an immense impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting packages offered by our company come with Node.js and you can add this innovative platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number selected by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly intuitive graphical interface.
