Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites that support live interaction. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the site substantially. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any other platform, which can have a tremendous influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

A few minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to terminate it if you do not need it any longer.

After that, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance.
