Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system intended for sites which offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a huge impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to view the output of any given application.
