Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system used for websites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional platform, which can have a serious influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.
