Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O system designed for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one giant 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 one. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can have a substantial influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.
