Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform intended for Internet sites that support interactive communication. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one big 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. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can exert a significant effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Web Hosting

This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to restart each instance independently, if it is necessary.
