Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform intended for websites that support interactive communication. Some examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can have a great effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared web hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also choose a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is amazingly user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without having any obstacles, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can run as many instances as you wish on our really powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
