Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O system built for websites which offer interactive communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one large 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 box. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional system, which can have an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with every shared website hosting package offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see any given application’s output.
