Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform devised for websites that offer live interaction. Several examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other system, which can exert a significant effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.
