Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system built for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. A few instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a substantial influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is needed.

You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have added.
