Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform meant for websites which support live communication. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a great impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting plans offered by our company include Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to set the location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather easy-to-use graphical interface.
