Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O system used for sites which support interactive communication. A few examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other platform, which can exert an immense influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

All Linux shared web hosting offered by our company include Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the exact path to your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port specified by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-navigate interface.
