Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform devised for sites which offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for example, usually 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 in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can exert an immense effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the hosting plan that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you wish 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 include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to restart each instance independently, if required.
