Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform built for Internet sites that support live interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a considerable influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
If you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like 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 add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.
