Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large 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. Thus, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional system, which can exert a noticeable effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number set by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally user-friendly interface.
