Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform meant for websites which support live interaction. Several examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the website and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web 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 processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can exert a noticeable effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to view the output of any given application.
