Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform used for websites that support interactive communication. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a substantial influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
If you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using.

You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, in case it is required.

You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP.
