Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform intended for Internet sites which offer live interaction. Several instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can exert a considerable impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to check any given app’s output.
