Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform meant for websites that support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a given form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any other platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All Linux cloud packages offered by us support Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to select the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally user-friendly interface.
