Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform devised for Internet sites which support live interaction. Some instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk 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 one. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional system, which can exert a huge impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting
plan that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
plan through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it’s included with each and every package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly simple to work with, you will be able to do that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our extremely powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with no effort.
