Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform designed for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other platform, which can exert a serious effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting

plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view any given application’s output.
