Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output system intended for websites that support live communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any other platform, which can exert a tremendous influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Several minutes later, you will be able to specify the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you don’t need it anymore.

Our platform will also assign a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.
