Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O system devised for Internet sites that offer live communication. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the 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 information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional platform, which can have a great impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given app.
