Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform meant for Internet sites that support interactive communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a significant impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All Linux cloud website hosting packages that we are offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to set the path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number set by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-use graphical interface.
