Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output system used for sites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any other platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application 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 hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.
