Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system intended for sites that offer live interaction. Some examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional platform, which can have a noticeable effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given app.
