Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform devised for sites which support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can use the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s intuitive GUI, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS hosting plans that we offer and you can set it up without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that Node.js provides. You have to define the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.
