Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform devised for sites which support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one giant chunk 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 much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s needed.
