Why is Node.js so powerful? Why is it a great option for your next web application?
Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform designed for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any other platform, which can have a noticeable impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting
plan you’ve selected during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to disable it in case you don’t need it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with just one mouse click.
