Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system meant for sites that offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other platform, which can have a substantial effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s required.

You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address.
