Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for Internet sites that support live communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any traditional system, which can have an immense impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to include the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it in case you don’t want it anymore. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only one click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll 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, since it’s included with each and every plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include 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 physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is included in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are pretty powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or shut down separately and you’ll obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
