Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform intended for websites which support real-time interaction. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be handled much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can have a considerable influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared website hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should go through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to see the output of any given app.
