Learn more about the capabilities of the Node.js software instrument and how it can be used to enhance your web apps.
Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system used for websites that support real-time communication. Some examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

A few minutes later, you’ll be able to enter 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 address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you do not need it anymore. You will also be provided with access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you need on our ultra-powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
